A joint funeral for actresses Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Fisher’s mother, will take place Thursday in Los Angeles.

The Hollywood Reporter said the service will be private and for friends and family. Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, was in charge of the arrangements.

Fisher, 60, known for her role in “Star Wars,” died Dec. 27 after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. Reynolds, 84, who was in “Singing in the Rain,” died of complications from a stroke the next day. The two were next- door neighbors.

Broadway theaters will honor Fisher and Reynolds on Friday.

A parade was held in memory of Fisher last week in New Orleans.
